What are poop cramps?
A colon spasm is a spontaneous and sudden contraction of the muscles in your colon. The colon is part of the large intestine. It’s responsible for forming, storing, and excreting feces. Colon spasms are frequently associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Why do I sweat and feel sick when I poop?
Dr. Sheth calls the feel-good sensation “poo-phoria.” It occurs when your bowel movement stimulates the vagus nerve, which runs from the brainstem to the colon. When the vagus nerve is stimulated, it can cause sweating and chills, as well as a drop in blood pressure and heart rate.

How can I relax my bowels?
Try to sit on the toilet for 15 minutes at the same time each day, even if you can’t “go.” It can relax your digestive system and cue your body for a bowel movement. Do this: While on the toilet, you can try to rest your feet on a low stool or raise your knees above your hips. Ignore your body’s signals.
Why do we fart before we poop?
A buildup of gas-producing foods and swallowed air during the day may make you more flatulent in the evening. Also, you‘re more likely to fart when the muscles in the intestines are stimulated. When you‘re about to have a bowel movement, for example, those muscles are moving stool to the rectum.

Why does diarrhea smell so bad?
Certain foods, such as eggs, garlic, legumes, and dairy, are hard to digest and can cause gas. In turn, this makes your stool extra pungent. Other times, the problem may be from an abundance of bad bacteria in your gut, a viral infection, or Clostridioides difficile—a bacterium that causes diarrhea.
